It was after ten pm on a Thursday and even though we were assured a dry afternoon, it hadn't ceased raining! James and me were sitting there discussing the sports rankings, waiting around for the sixth telephone call for the day to come in. In due time we received a phone call from a lovely women on a business trip who had arrived at the Shell petrol garage in Carnoustie and put petrol in her diesel expensive Volkswagen Tiguan rental. She was very affected by the sounds of it, saying "I still can't believe I have wrecked the vehicle! I'm so used to putting unleaded in my petrol vehicle that I had did not remember that I was running a diesel!" We told her to settle back and not to worry, plus that these things do happen. She had managed to relocate the car to a safe area and, as it was no more than a short distance from the office, we were able to arrive at the lady swiftly.

How to find out if I put the wrong fuel in my car?

If you’ve just filled up at a petrol station and the cars starts to act a bit strange you might start to wonder if you accidentally put the wrong fuel in it.

Well, there are a few things to can check that will be able to tell you:

  1. How is the car responding? There are some very common misfuel symptoms which can be a good indicator of wrong fuel:
    • Loss of engine power – can feel like the car has run out of fuel
    • A lot of smoke (more than usual)
    • Engine coughing or starting to splutter
    • Won’t start – or keeps stalling.
  2. Look at your fuel receipt. It will state clearly if you filled up with diesel or unleaded. If you don’t have the receipt, you can often return to the petrol station where you filled up and give them the date and time (and pump) where you refuelled and they will often be able to give you a VA receipt.
  3. Smell it. Diesel and petrol have very distinctly different smells. Anyone familiar with the motor industry should be able to help you with this. Or you could even get another car to park alongside and smell the fuel caps of both, comparing them to determine what the fuel type is.
  4. Call us to come out and assess the car. In the majority of cases we will be able to tell if the car has been misfuelled before beginning work on it. If we discover that the vehicle does not need a fuel drain, you will only be charged a call-out fee.
